BACKGROUND
In 2008, the City of Dallas leased the subsurface mineral rights for 5,181.5 acres of city property including 3,894.85 acres of municipally owned parkland. The City of Dallas is prohibiting surface level drilling and mineral production on parkland as part of the gas leases. The City of Dallas has taken great efforts to ensure none of the surface level recreational uses will be disturbed. All natural gas drilling and production will take place at an off-site location through methods such as directional drilling. Accordingly. no park assets or recreational activities will be impacted.
